Oak Ridge Boys performs "Leaving Louisiana In The Broad Daylight" on Pop Goes The Country.

"Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight" is a song written by Rodney Crowell and Donivan Cowart. The song was initially covered by Emmylou Harris (in whose band Crowell had played during the late 1970s), who included it on her 1978 Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town album.

The Oak Ridge Boys released the song in December 1979 as the third single from their album The Oak Ridge Boys Have Arrived. "Leaving Louisiana in the Broad Daylight" was The Oak Ridge Boys' second number one country single, remaining at number one for a single week, and spending a total of eleven weeks on the chart.

Oak Ridge Boys Leaving Louisiana In The Broad Daylight Lyrics

Mary took to running with a travelling man

Left her momma crying with her head in her hands

Such a sad case, so broken hearted

She say, momma, gotta go, gotta get outta here

Gotta get outta town, tired of hanging around

I gotta roll on between the ditches

Just an ordinary story 'bout the way things go

'Round and around, nobody knows

But the highway goes on forever

That ol' highway rolls on forever

 

Lord, she never would’ve done it if she hadn't got drunk

If she hadn't started running with a travelling man

If she hadn't started taking those crazy chances

She say, daughter, let me tell you 'bout the travelling' kind

Everywhere he's goin' such a very short time

He'll be long gone before you know it

He'll be long gone before you know it

 

She say, never have I known it when it felt so good

Never have I knew it when I knew I could

Never have I done it when it looked so right

Leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight

 

This is down in the swampland, anything goes

It's alligator bait and the bars don't close

It's the real thing down in Louisiana

Did you ever see a Cajun when he really got mad

When he really got trouble like a daughter goin’ bad

It gets real hot down in Louisiana

The stranger better move it or he's gonna get killed

He's gonna have to get it or a shotgun will

It ain't no time for lengthy speeches

There ain't no time for lengthy speeches

 

She say, never have I known it when it felt so good

Never have I knew it when I knew I could

Never have I done it when it looked so right

Leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight

 

She say, never have I known it when it felt so good

Never have I knew it when I knew I could

Never have I done it when it looked so right

Leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight

 

Just an ordinary story 'bout the way things go

'Round and around nobody knows

But the highway goes on forever

That old highway rolls on forever
